116. Possibly
And possibly the concept of the political reality we live in is alien to many of you.

If we were living in different times, I would agree with you completely about national service. I have always been in favor of that 'concept', surprising as that may be to you.

I spent 14 years married to a man who did a 22yr career in the Navy. I sacrificed when no one was paying attention, trust me. I was always absolutely supportive of his career in service to this country.

I have also told my son that if this country were ever truly in danger, I would be the first one pushing him out the door to do his duty and fight for the freedoms we all enjoy. Don't attempt to judge this book by the cover. I fully understand the 'concept' of national service.

I also understand that this BULLSHIT war started by this BULLSHIT president is NOT one that I'm willing to predicate a dialog about national service upon. If you really think for one minute that now is the time for that, well then you'll have to excuse me, but I believe you're seriously fucking deluded.
